Assume all calculations are at 25C, so that K w = 1.0 10-14 (and pK w = 14.00). 1. What is the conjugate acid of each of the following species? Base Conjugate acid (a) S 2 H S (b) CH 3 COO C H 3 COOH (c) ClO 2 H C l O 2 (d) SO 3 2 H S O 3 2. What is the conjugate base of each of the following species? A c i d C o n j u g a t e b a s e (a) H 2 CO 3 H C O 3 (b) HNO 3 N O 3 (c) H 2 PO 4 H P O 4 2 (d) [(CH 3 ) 2 NH 2 ] + (dimethylammonium ion) (CH 3 ) 2 NH (dimethylamine) 3. Write balanced chemical reactions and K a or K b expressions for the first ionization of the following acids and bases ( i.e . assume in each case that only one H + is ionized or added). (a) HF (b) H 3 PO 4 (c) CH 3 NH 2 (d) CH 3 COOH (e) HClO 4 (a) HF + H 2 O F + H 3 O + K a = [F ][ H 3 O + ] [HF] (b) H 3 PO 4 + H 2 O H 2 PO 4 + H 3 O + K a = [H 2 PO 4 ][ H 3 O + ] [H 3 PO 4 ] (c) CH 3 NH 2 + H 2 O CH 3 NH 3 + + OH K b = [CH 3 NH 3 + ] [OH ] [ C H 3 NH 2 ] (d) CH 3 COOH + H 2 O H 3 O + + CH 3 COO K a = [H 3 O + ] [CH 3 COO ] [ C H 3 COOH] (e) HClO 4 is a strong acid and is fully dissociated at all concentrations in water. The equilibrium constant is much, much greater than 1, so we normally do not write it.

(a) What is the pH of a 0.035 M solution of Ba(OH) 2 (aq)? (b) What is the pH of a 0.0042 M solution of HClO 4 (aq)? (c) What is the pOH of the solution in part (b)? (d) A 30.0 mL sample of HClO 4 was diluted to 500 mL, and the pH of the final solution was 4.56. What was the concentration of HClO 4 in the original sample? SOLUTION: (a) Ba(OH) 2 (aq) is a soluble hydroxide, and a strong base. It dissociates fully in water, so Ba(OH) 2 (aq) produces Ba 2+ (aq) and 2 OH (aq). The original 0.035 M sample of Ba(OH) 2 (aq) therefore produces 0.035 M Ba 2+ ions, and 2 (0.035M) OH ions (according to the formula of our hydroxide). [ OH] = 2(0.035M) = 0.070 M From this we can find pOH: pOH = -log[ OH] = -log[0.070] = 1.15 From pH + pOH = 14.00 , rearrange to get (2 sig figs. becomes 2 dec. places) pH = 14.00 pOH = 14.00 1.15 = 12.85 (b) HClO 4 is a strong acid, and dissociates fully in water to give: HClO 4 (aq) + H 2 O(l) ClO 4 (aq) + H 3 O + (aq) The original 0.0042 M sample of HClO 4 (aq) therefore produces 0.0042 M ClO 4 ions, and 0.0042 M H 3 O + ions pH = -log[H 3 O + ] = -log(0.0042) = 2.38 (c) pOH = 14.00 pOH = 14.00 2.38 = 11.62 (d) Since HClO 4 is a strong acid, it dissociates fully in solution. In the final solution, is a strong acid, it dissociates fully in solution....
